I am trying to find a way to disable the 'Edit with Microsoft Office Word' option in the 'Page' menu in Internet Explorer 7.0.

My scenario is the following:
We have between 100 and 150 users each with Windows XP Professional and Internet Explorer 7.0.
We have an intranet page which is automatically set to their homepage via group policy.
The problem is that every user has the ability to click the 'Page' menu and click 'Edit with Microsoft Office Word' and change text/links on this intranet page.
Is there a way to disable this option via group policy? Or perhaps disable the entire 'Page' menu?
